So my 3 year old is running around in her pants, I don't know why, she often takes her clothes off. FIL has just said words to the effect, that she looks like a Page 3 girl hmm angry so had a bit of a spat and said how sexually inappropriate that is as a comparison. MIL sat in silence AIBU?

EEEWW! No YANBU! Get out of there! Are they in your house?

Had similar from MIL saying DD could be a glamour model before. hmm

Ugh. And that perfectly demonstrates the effect of Page 3. Man sees a small child's bare chest and his immediate thought is 'tits'.

What the fuck, that's HORRIBLE. YANBU!

You said words to the effect so I'm guessing he didn't just say 'looks like a page 3 girl' and made it sound worse. ugh I would keep distance from him over that tbh.

"words to the effect" could also mean not as bad

Also my DN used to run around naked when she was 3 shrieking "I'm naked!" so I don't think it's unusual at that age.

I think his words were, "just like a Page 3 girl" as she topless in her pants. TBH MIL silence has pissed me off almost (maybe more) I always thought FIL was a sexist dick, and doesn't appear to recognise when he's being inappropriate, but MIL come on woman, step up- she has an opinion about most other things!

That's vile sad

She's three! There's nothing outside her pants to differentiate her from a three year old boy.

Me and my sister used to run round the garden with our equally naked friends at twice her age! blush

How could you look at a small child and even think of page three? Truly weird.

What a blooming pervert! What did you say to him? I would be very worried he is looking at my child in a sexual way. I would not let her alone with him.

sorry, that is more than weird. to look at your granddaughter and think of Page 3 girls is not normal. in light of his comments i would insist that any contact between GPs and DD is supervised, because MIL sounds like a doormat.

That's sick.

MIL come on woman, step up- she has an opinion about most other things!

Well her silence clearly indicates she doesn't see anything wrong with what he said.

What a nasty minded man. Yuk. You say you had a bit of a spat. What did you say to him and what did he reply?

ragz134 Tue 11-Oct-16 17:16:42

Did he say it in a dissaproving way? Or an appreciative way?

Good for you for challenging him on it BTW
